Check out my little fruity soaps. I am in love with the simplicity of this recipe – the soap needs to simmer for quite a while to get rid of the meths smell but after that the results are just great! You can have a go too by following this link.  If you are after more eco-friendly soap I would try soap nuts – we tried them out and loved them. If you just want to find out how soap works, try reading this article on saponification.   The moulds that I use are just ice-cube trays. These make cute little soaps that can be used as party favours – just tell your guests not to eat them!

For those of you in the Sydney area we run Cosmetic Kitchen birthday parties for kids aged between 7-107 and SOAP is on the menu.  These parties can be booked through our partners – Fizzics Education, they are great for winter birthdays as we are busy cooking up bath treats inside.
